Toronto International Film Festival

Gerard Butler was spotted arriving at Toronto Pearson International Airport in Toronto, Canada on Thursday (September 8). He was in town to premiere his film Machine Gun Preacher at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival. On September 9th, he attended the Artists For Peace And Justice cocktail event Painting The Night Red. Artists for Peace and Justice is a non-profit organization supporting communities in Haiti through programs in education, health and dignity. He was dressed in Dolce&Gabbana, and was joined at the event by Jason Reitman, director Paul Haggis, and APJ board member David Belle. On September 10th, Gerard Butler hit the red carpet at the Creative Coalition’s 2011 Spotlight Initiative Awards held at the Roosevelt Room during the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival. He was joined on the carpet by his Machine Gun Preacher co-star Michelle Monaghan, who was honored with an award during the evening. That evening, Gerard also checked out the premiere of the film Rampart during the festival. Gerard recently spoke with the Los Angeles Times and teared up while discussing the film. "This happened to me a lot when we were filming. I would just be overcome. I feel every emotion. I haven’t talked much about this movie in a while, and I did the other day, and I just started crying. I cried for about five minutes," he explained. "I think it was a great responsibility for Gerry to play the role of a guy who is alive, a guy who is as dynamic as Sam with a story that’s so incredible,” Jason told the LAT. “During the sessions, and even when we were filming, I saw him going deeper and deeper [into the role]. It was an incredible burden [for him]."
On September 11th, Gerard Butler and his Coriolanus co-star Jessica Chastain attend the Killer Joe party at the Toronto International Film Festival at vitaminwater Rooftop in Toronto, Canada. The two actors attended the CAA - and vitaminwater-sponsored bash, which celebrated Emile Hirsch‘s new comedy-drama. The next day, Gerard and Jessica promoted Coriolanus at a press conference during the film festival. The two were joined by co-star Ralph Fiennes and Brian Cox.
